Blizzard Entertainment says that total World of Warcraft paying subscribers have reached 10 million worldwide, by far the most popular MMORPG ever made.

"It's very gratifying to see gamers around the world continuing to show such enthusiasm and support for World of Warcraft," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment, who is often cited as one of the most influential individuals in technology.

According to Blizzard, there are 2 million paying subscribers in Europe, more than 2.5 million in North America, and a whopping 5.5 million in Asia. World of Warcraft is currently available in seven languages.

Since debuting in North America on November 23, 2004, the MMO has been criticized for being highly addictive. An expansion pack, The Burning Crusade, was released last year, and development of the game's second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, is underway and expected for release later this year.
